Photo ride

After work, my bike was calling my name. As it was too late for caffeine, I headed off to my friends: the wheat field and the power pole.

One of the advantages of touring around on a bike is how easy it is to jump off and take a couple of pictures.

For once, the wind seemed to be at my back most of the time, well, except for one section. No worries. I geared down and enjoyed the scenery. After all, my bike isn’t built for speed, but comfort. With its upright seating, it’s more of an “enjoy the scenery” sort of ride.

I hope you’re enjoying your summer evenings, too!

Queen Anne’s Sunset

Last night, I biked to the Hillsboro airport to watch the sunset. Thanks to low clouds, the sunset was over before it started, but still made a nice backdrop for some Queen Anne’s lace.1In addition to snapping the picture above, I learned that I’m gay. This, according to some discriminating bloke who hollered, “F*k you, f*g!” as he tooled by with his dirty pickup. This was a surprise, even to me. ;-)
